Swimming Victoria has announced the 2019 Victorian Country Swimming Championships will be held at Warragul Leisure Centre.
This follows the $14 million upgrades and renovations to the facility that were completed in December 2016, which included the construction of the 50-metre outdoor pool.
It's the first time Warragul will host the event. President of Gippsland Swimming, Jacqueline Madden, told Hit FM News this morning she's proud to have the event in our region.
The carnival will take place on the Australia Day long weekend next year.
